Bloviating Zeppelin: Stopped: Funding for ObamaKare & "Net Neutrality"

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Stopped: Funding for ObamaKare & "Net Neutrality"

The House voted on Friday (2-18) to block funding for ObamaKare.

Specifically, the House voted to prohibit any funds be used by the Internal Revenue Service to carry out the law's mandate that Americans buy health insurance. The individual mandate, one of the law's key tenets, has been struck down by federal courts.

The House also adopted an amendment by Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., to bar the Labor and Health and Human Services Departments from spending any money for the rest of fiscal year 2011 on the health care law. Still another provision adopted today would ban the government from paying the salaries of any federal employee involved in implementing the health care law.

Further, one day prior (Thursday, 2-17), the House stopped any funding for the FCC's application of so-called "net neutrality":
The amendment, approved on a 244-181 vote, was offered by Energy and Commerce Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore., to legislation that would fund government agencies for the rest of fiscal year 2011.

Walden and other critics of the FCC's net-neutrality order argue it will stifle innovation and investment in broadband. The order aims to bar broadband providers from discriminating against Internet content, services, or applications.

"If left unchallenged, this claim of authority would allow the FCC to regulate any matter it discussed in the national broadband plan," Walden said.

Mr Obama also, as you recall, wants to create an "OFF" switch for the US internet under the guise of Pulling The Big Red Handle only when the hacking is dangerous and the government is threatened. Instead, I posit, think: Egypt.

Mr Obama and the Leftists seem to forget that their administration isn't permanent and that, under a different administration, Handles can be pulled "whenever."

Anyone here doubt that a Leftist government wouldn't sever the internet if the internet were flying with the various Truths about oppression of freedom?

Me neither.

Gerald Celente makes an interesting observation which tends to tie many things together:
Celente believes the government will use this increased defense allowance to amass weapons and apparatuses that will control any dissent among the people. Citing a Feb. 15 article in the USA Today titled, Kill Switch Bill Alarms Privacy Experts, Jones says the government has already begun taking steps to control an uprising. They've openly stated that they want to be able to shut down the Internet and they're getting ready to launch a false flag using either a terrorist alert or the threat of war as an excuse to flip the kill switch.

Remove guns and weapons of all stripes from The People, disable communications, and you have much better control over citizens when you wish. And as we all know, those who lack the ability to defend themselves are called either 1) Dead or 2) Serfs.

Moves are being made, ladies and gentlemen, internationally and locally. Forewarned is forearmed. Literally.

I honestly believe that we are going to see armed conflict here in America -- between Americans.

After catching up on the news and all the goings on with those protesters in the Midwest, I now believe that the days of armed conflict may come quite soon. few weeks ago, I would not have made that extreme statement.

@AOW-
I've thought the same thing for some time. Boldness has given way to stupidity, as is illustrated by the Dallas pol in BZ's post a few below this one. When the "I wants mine and I wants it NOW!" crowd finds the teat is dry, they'll come looking for ways to take it from the weak.
So don't be weak.

Silver closed above $32/oz Friday, more than double its price of 15 months ago. There's a reason for that.
Be prepared, or be a victim.

The Net Neutrality bill is mostly GOP ideas so I hope it ends. And this OFF button you speak of is already in place thanks to Bush. Get your fact right before you start pointing fingers.

ALways on Watch...stop watching Glenn freikin' Beck.

I am afraid that it will disintegrate into violence because the left refuses to take NO for an answer.

Next up for the machine shop, a few months down the road: a lathe.

Then I will be able to make a mill.

Threaded rod is cheap and I have spare computers.

End mill bits are a tad pricey, but can be cared for with maintenance... or cut from new stock on the lathe.

A small machineshop with 20" metal lathe and 10" bed mill means you are making your own firearms. Perfectly legal so long as you don't sell them. And if you can get a cheap drill press from Harborfreight or one of the other wholesale from the dockside concerns, you are then well on your way to milliong out partially cast receivers... the home hobby gunsmith has been around for ages. It is meeting CNC lathes and mills at the low end, plus the Gingery people at the bottom-up end.

Just keep the power running for a few hours a day and you have precision designed metal works at the small scale. And no one can now stop this technology, even if we go crash...

Shop: I am afraid so. . .

AJ: wish I had the property and the room and the tools and the skills myself. . .
